AESTHETIC MOVEMENT BROWN TRANSFERWARE CHEESE KEEP

FABLES PATTERN

Burgess and Leigh ~ Staffordshire England  1891

This very rare Victorian 10 1/2 " long x 7 1/2 " wide  x 6 " tall cheese stand is transfer printed in dark brown.  Vent holes along the top to let the cheese breathe. 

The pattern features Aesops Fables along with some very quirky mice.  The transfers are works of Victorian art.

Condition is good save for a small chip and an associated stable hairline crack to the base.  This pattern is near impossible to find especially in this unique form.  Fabulous for use or display.
